Provide rich, acidic, well-drained soil. Site away from harsh, prolonged afternoon sun in hot, dry summer areas to avoid leaf burn. Follow a schedule of deep waterings during the growing season to develop an extensive root system. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing.
